Christmas Day

Joy has dawned upon the world
Promised from creation
God's salvation now unfurled
Hope for every nation
Not with fanfares from above
Not with scenes of glory
But a humble gift of love
Jesus born of Mary 

 - Joy Has Dawned, Keith and Kristyn Getty


  Christmas this year was cinnamon pecan roles for breakfast, awesome presents under the tree, and the smell of Christmas dinner wafting through the house. It was friends over who struggled with Brendan's puzzles, laughter over the Game of Things, and the Doctor Who special.

  Christmas is the best. I love the fact that it's a time of year that we've decided to make special by making amazing food and giving each other presents, and by wearing tacky sweaters and putting trees in our living rooms. 

 More than anything, though, I love that it's a time to celebrate the incredible fact that God so loved the world that He sent His only Son. Of course we should remember this all year long - but I think we need a special yearly reminder, full of "Silent Night", Nativity scenes, and angels on trees. I'm really glad Christmas exists.


I hope you all had the loveliest of Christmases. And, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless us, everyone.


love,
Hannah
